NewSpin Golf's redesigned website showcases golf swing analyzer

NORTH BARRINGTON, Ill. -- NewSpin Golf has launched a completely redesigned website for its award-winning SwingSmart golf swing analyzer, showcasing free video tips from Peter Kostis and a refined user experience that mirrors the best-in-class interface that consistently separates the device from rival products.

Other consumer-driven aspects of the new site include an overview of the product's myriad benefits, quick access to technical support and tutorials to help players maximize the benefits derived from using the SwingSmart system.

"There's a lot of confusing noise in the marketplace about why and how leading edge technologies can help golfers play better and enjoy the game more," says Angelo Papadourakis, CEO of NewSpin Golf. "So we've created an online environment that clearly showcases why SwingSmart is so superior that time after time it finishes No. 1 in independent testing versus copy-cat products."

Developed by a team of expert technologists using only the best components available, SwingSmart is a first-of-its-kind solution that provides instant, hyper-accurate feedback on critical elements of a golfer's swing. Weighing less than 1 oz., the Bluetooth-enabled SwingSmart sensor module quickly and easily clips to a golf club shaft and wirelessly communicates with the free app for iOS and Android devices.

Having drawn rave reviews from PGA professionals, retailers, journalists and consumers, the SwingSmart app is available for free download on the Google Play and iTunes stores. It allows information to be viewed immediately, shared with an instructor, or saved for future reference. A defining feature of the system is the in-app instructional videos through which Peter Kostis provides a variety of swing tips to help players optimize performance.

With each swing, the SwingSmart system ($249.99) immediately delivers:

• Key Stats - Instant, accurate, easy-to-interpret information on tempo, swing speed, face angle, shaft lean and angle of attack

• Path and Plane - 3D Swing View shows 360-degrees of a player's swing motion, highlighting the exact route of the club head from any angle

• Putting Results - More than just a full-swing tool, the system also provides info on the putting stroke to help players lower the number of putts taken per round

• Personal Best - Data from a golfer's best swings can be saved and used as points of reference

SwingSmart provides a real-time snapshot of how the club is being manipulated through impact. This allows players to adjust and learn what is successful for their individual games. A great, year-round practice tool, SwingSmart features a special Training mode that provides the key data necessary to help players learn the proper swing motion, without the pressure of hitting a ball.

The company recently launched the SwingSmart Duo, which incorporates HiQ Technology. Requiring zero user set-up, adjustment or calibration, HiQ is built using a proprietary pattern recognition process not found anywhere else in the industry, which increases the accuracy of captured swing data, including the renowned SwingSmart 3D Swing View™. It utilizes an algorithm that adapts to each user's swing to faithfully measure their drives, chips and putts.

Repeatedly honored since its debut, SwingSmart received GOLF Magazine's 2013 "Techy Award" in the Training Aid category, The system was also named the "Overall Winner" in the swing training category by MyGolfSpy.com and receiving a "Product Ingenuity" award from the International Network of Golf.
